The historian in me looks forward to tomorrow, consequences be damned. I am grateful to God for granting me historical perspective, a gift that many conservatives have and which serves to keep us from drinking the lib'rul kool-aid. If in fact illegitimate Americans prevail tomorrow and the black Irishman, O'Bama is elected then I will be able to take some small comfort in history. History has demonstrated that the American people are all too willing to accept dalliances with socialism. Presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson and to a degree even Abraham Lincoln all elevated the federal state beyond the intentions of the Founders. In each instance, America eventually recoilled and regained her collective senses. America was not founded upon the notion that the state is greater than the individual and that it provides for the individual. Our Founders believed in individual liberty and that government is only legitimate when it represents the consent of the governed. Nowhere in the Federalist Papers, Declaration of Independence or Constitution can I find any reference to government mandated health care, free education for all or government sponsored abortion.

In sum, should Americans tomorrow decide upon a leftward lean, it will have a basis in history and lessons for conservatives to learn. We must accept the verdict and move to strengthen our own legions, to make our positions clear and appealing to the mass of Americans who determine electoral outcomes. Reagan came to power in 1980 and swept away the stench of 48 years of unbridled liberal power. Now Republicans have enjoyed a short time at the helm and must admit that we performed poorly. Republicans did not govern conservatively and Americans may very well hold them responsible tomorrow. History tells us that this is how it should be. History also tells us to prepare. Socialism has failed wherever it has been tried. O'Bama's administration will attempt to go down that path. Conservatives should be prepared because the road to regaining the House, Senate and White House will be to highlight the path that O'Bama will litter with his failures. Legitimate Americans must remind our fellow citizens of that failure when the next election comes.

If this post sounds somewhat pessimistic I apologize. Nevada is once again a battleground state. I thought that fleeing California 20 years ago was the best means to achieve residency in legitimate America. For the past 8 years that has been the case but today Nevada is on the cusp of voting for the annointed one. My own analysis of the situation leads me to believe that at least in Nevada, the state polls are pretty close. Currently O'Bama is ahead by 3 pts. within the margin of error. However there are two crucial House races in this state, one is CD-2 which is my own district and the other is CD-3 which is where Larry "Bull" Smith lives. The dems have gone all out to win these seats and in CD-2 an incredibly liberal and unqualified candidate has ample financial support. Her ads blare consistently on the radio and TV. Fortunately my congresscritter is also well financed and it appears as though sanity will prevail in this district, the latest poll putting Dean Heller ahead of Jill Derby by 4-5 pts, just outside the margin of error.

This bodes well for John McCain in my area but I already knew that I live in a predominately Republican area. Four years ago Bush-Cheney signs outnumbered Kerry signs by about 5-3 in my area. This year I make the same drive and see 8 McCain signs for every O'Bama sign. Anecdotal I know but hopefully it augers well for both McCain and Heller. "Bull" Smith reports that down in CD-3 Congresscritter Porter is in a helluva fight with Dina Titus. Polls are neck and neck. This isn't good since the outlying areas of Las Vegas will be needed by McCain to offset the overwhelming numbers and open fraud that will be committed in Vegas for the democrats. This also means that rural Nevada will need extraordinary turnout in order to overcome the lead that the dems will build in the urban areas. It appears to be a difficult task. O'Bama has been camping out in this state and has made repeated trips to the rural areas. Areas that normally vote 70% Republican or better. McCain needs them to stay there or above for him to have any chance at Nevada and O'Bama has been attacking that demographic.

Worse still is what most legitimate Americans hate most about Presidential campaigns. The non-stop advertising. O'Bama pretty much owned the airwaves of Northern Nevada from mid-September to mid-October. Faux gun-owners proclaiming that the O'messiah would protect our Second Amendment rights as hunters. Stupid....obviously these stalwart gunowners and pretend conservatives have no understanding of why the Second Amendment was crafted. Finally in the last two weeks McCain has been hitting back on the air but will it be too little too late? In the end, after all of my assessment and analysis I think that Nevada could go either way this time. I would have to make O'Bama a slight favorite based on the fervor of his misguided, kool-aid drinking legions. I'd say McCain has roughly 4 chances in 10 to take Nevada. Let's hope that he gets that key hit with 2 out in the 9th. If you want to help, then get out and vote and vote for sanity and American values, not the false and ultimately failed promise of socialism.
